Update Your Restaurant's Audio Video Installation

Elevate Your Customer Experience with Modern AV technology

Update Your Restaurant's Audio Video Installation

If you own a restaurant or a bar in Scottsdale, you know just how competitive the market is. Scottsdale is an upscale area and patrons can be selective and finicky. Today’s hot restaurant concept may be tomorrow’s also-ran. With the cost of opening a new establishment averaging $250,000 and only going up from there, achieving a measure of longevity is critical to garnering a return on your investment.

Many moving parts contribute to a successful establishment. Don’t overlook how a modern audio-video technology installation can help differentiate your Scottsdale restaurant and elevate your patrons’ experience.

Read on for three ideas that are sure to please customers and ultimately deliver a positive effect to your bottom line, too.

Master Your Home Theater System

Control4 Makes It Easy

Master Your Home Theater System

How many remote controls do you have for your home theater?  Do you have an AV receiver?  Does your TV have multiple devices like a cable box, Blu-ray player, and a Roku?  Or do you have them connected to your AV receiver?  Do you have some devices connected to the TV and some connected to the AV receiver?  Do you find it hard to switch back to watching TV after viewing a show from another source?

So many questions, and so many remotes.  The truth is you may not find it all that hard to manage three remote controls for sitting down to watch a movie, but other people in your family may find it confusing.  Some of the confusion may depend on your equipment and how it is set up. Your video signal may be routed to a TV, and the sound gets routed separately through an AV receiver or some other sound system.  It can get quite confusing to change sources, and different sound modes that are optimized for movies or  TV only add to the complexity. 

Take it a step further, and things can get confusing for anyone.  What if you have converted a room in your Mesa home to house your home theater system, creating a wonderful entertainment escape from hot summer weekends and chilly winter nights in Arizona?  You may have a large flat panel TV for watching sports and use a projector for screening movies.  You have a multichannel sound system, and perhaps a cable box, streaming player, the latest 4K Blu-ray player, and a PS4 or Xbox One gaming console.  And you have lights that you want to adjust to the right level depending on the activity.  How many ways do you want to control all that? 

A Control4 solution can help tame your home theater system, managing every piece of AV equipment, as well as things like lights, shades, and temperature.  Read on for a simpler way.

Automation Makes for Better Business

How Commercial Audio Video Systems Boost the Bottom Line

Automation Makes for Better Business

As a business owner, you are always looking for ways to serve customers better, make your operations more efficient, and grow the bottom line.  But if you are running a service business, there aren’t always machines to automate what your people do.  You may think about software to manage financial and accounting information and other areas but perhaps are not familiar with the ways other aspects of automation can help your company.

If you employ any audio and video technology in your company for entertainment or collaboration purposes, you may be missing out on some opportunities to make that technology add additional value to your business, both in increased efficiency and as ways to provide your clients and customers a better experience. 

If you are running restaurant or bar, a medical or service office, or a professional workspace in Scottsdale, our commercial audio-video partner Control4 has cost-effective automation solutions to enable better customer experiences and save your staff and employees valuable time and energy. 

Let’s look at a few examples.

Have a Home Remodeling Project?

Modernize Your House With These Smart Home Upgrades

Have a Home Remodeling  Project?

As a homeowner or builder, if you are embarking on a remodel you likely have several objectives.  Depending on the scope of the projects, you may be changing the layout and flow.  Perhaps you are updating tired kitchens and bathroom, which add the most value and function.  Maybe you are doing a major project where almost every aspect of the home is revamped, inside and out. 

Regardless of the size of the project, any time you are moving walls, changing trim, upgrading electrical wiring, or replacing cabinets and plumbing, there is a perfect opportunity to install smart home technology.

Nothing updates a home more than installing current home automation capabilities. In a recent survey by Houzz, 45% of renovating homeowners are investing in smart home control features.

With that in mind, if you are planning a renovation or remodel in Paradise Valley, now is the time to consider these smart upgrades.
